: I'm guessing that's an unknown Simon. I could have been forced in

: something that doesn't fit into place.
: As for the condition of the dial, I'm also guessing that it has had

I did see it and had a think about it but at that money, with the service and restoration (and probably import duties) it's too much. I had a Tudor Snowflake where some rather expensive damage was done modifying the watch to accept a non-standard crystal. It would probably have had to have gone back to Rolex to have it rectified, I was lucky enough to sell it on for what I paid for it, with the buyer fully briefed about the issues. I'd be too worried to go near a Heuer with similar potential problems!
